Hiring Approach & Process

At Camp Tevya, we choose our counselors and support staff very carefully as we know that our staff are the most important part of our campers’ fantastic camp experience. We search for the right people worldwide, conducting interviews in the Northeast, England, Israel and elsewhere. While many of our counselors grew up at Tevya, we welcome staff new to camp every summer. Our staff members are people who have been inspired by a counselor or mentor as a child and now have an opportunity to serve as a role model for today’s campers.

Camp Tevya 2013Camp is the real 24/7 experience (although staff does get a day off almost every week). Parents place their complete trust in us for their children’s needs and expect our complete dedication and attention. And the Camp Tevya staff delivers!

Working at camp is a great career move, because we truly invest in our staff. With extensive pre-camp and in-service training, we enable each staff member to improve their skills in communication, collaboration, creativity, mentoring and leadership, all qualifications that will serve you well in future employment.

How the hiring process works:

  1. You review Available Jobs and Apply Online.
  2. Our Recruiter will review your application and, if appropriate, be in touch to schedule a phone or in-person interview.
  3. If it looks like you might be a good fit, you’ll have other interviews with leadership staff.
  4. Before offering you a job, we’ll review your references carefully. We’ll ask your references about how you relate to people, especially children. We’ll ask about your work habits, manners, personality, willingness to pitch in, compassion, fun, energy, and patience. We’ll also conduct a background check.
  5. If all goes well, we’ll see you at the training sessions and at camp!

American Camp Association accreditation standards limit the number of staff members we can employ under the age of 18. Camp Tevya is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate applicants in regards to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status.
